One From Three

I am up, getting ready for my first sippa coffee.
There used to be a radio station here called Ocean 95, it was a thing of beauty, fully automated, the entire station was in one equipment rack, satellite receiver, computer with internet, and transmitter, hooked up to the antenna.
The owner sold it, and the new management turned it into a regular station. Offices, announcers, studios and salespeople. Went out of business fast.
There were two other stations of the religious variety, Heaven 97 and Gospel 88. Their owner decided to take a trip (to Australia?) and apparently quit paying the bills. Eventually the two stations lost their licenses.
Now one lady has acquired all the equipment from all three stations, and this morning I am going to assess this equipment so she can make one (two?) radio stations of her own. Computer driven and satellite fed.
A lot of this equipment has been in storage for quite some time, and my be worthless, but a lot has been in use till fairly recently and will probably be good.
Should be an interesting morning!
